The BeeScanning app combines the use of artificial intelligence and smartphones, enabling beekeepers to easily detect Varroa mites and reduce the risk of death in their bee communities.
Projects & Practice
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
An association used RDP support to turn the ‘disadvantages’ of long periods of cold and darkness in northern Sweden, into a unique selling point for tourism.
A farm employing people with special needs set up a process line and an experimental kitchen, where non-commercial agricultural produce can be turned into new products.
A project that supports the integration of young immigrants into Swedish society and is organised by young immigrants themselves.
A slaughterhouse was established on the island of Bornholm to offer slaughtering facilities to small husbandry farms or for larger herds of sheep or cattle.
A micro distillery was established with the aim of producing unique, high-quality vodka and brandy from potatoes that are not of marketable quality.
A micro enterprise received LEADER support and turned a hobby into a revenue-generating business: using insects to produce protein flour for animal feed.
